Heat a medium size pan on medium heat.
Add the water, sugar, and the sachet of spices. Stir. When the water comes to a boil, add the cranberries and stir.
Cook until the cranberries begin to pop (about 5 minutes). Remove the pan from the heat, add the orange zest and cool.
If you have the time, refrigerate 1 to 3 days before serving. If not, let the cranberries cook a little longer until the desired consistency is reached (about 4 to 5 minutes). Continuously stir as it’s cooking. Stir in the orange zest and let cool to room temperature.
Chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour and remove the sachet before serving.
